With the Eastern Conference Finals finally underway, the Miami Heat took Game 1 on their home floor in an overtime thriller down in South Beach last night. Though the Pacers put forth a valiant effort, it was the King and his crew who raised their hands in victory when it was all said and done.
For all the sneakerheads who were watching the game, you may have been paying close attention to the kicks LeBron decided to lace up for Game 1. Wonder no more, for we have some nice action shots after the jump of LeBron rocking a pair of white/black speckle Nike LeBron X Elite PE’s.
With subtle hints of red most prominently found up near the lacing system, this pair of PE’s is a lot more simple in design as opposed to some of the other models we’ve seen King James rock. The simplified white on black colorway, accompanied by the speckled panels and midsole, flows rather nicely about the Nike LeBron X Elite silhouette.
Keep Reading after the jump to see some nice photos of LeBron in action rocking the aforementioned kicks. Would you sneakerheads like to see these go retail or are they served best as a one-of-one pair of PE’s?
It seems as if LeBron James debuts a new shoe every single playoff game. Specifically, he’s worn seven different shoes in Miami’s 10 playoff games this postseason. His latest debut came in the form of a never-before-seen, black and white Nike LeBron X Elite PE in Game 1 of the Pacers vs. Heat series. The distinctive element of this LeBron X Elite is a black and white speckled element that is seen throughout the entire midsole and side panels. View multiple, detailed shots of this Elite PE in addition to LeBron’s game winner, in today’s Kicks On Court edition.

Oh did Ray Horecek and the PUMA innovation team aim for the stars with this new design. PUMA introduces the Mobium Elite, the pure nature of performance. While fiddling around with contraction and expansion, designer Ray Horecek and PUMA successfully developed a sole that spreads naturally to cushion any impact. There are three main parts of this shoe that makes it what it is, the mobium band, windless chassis, and expansion pods. We already understand that the mobium band is powered by the force applied which returns more of a spring whenever contacted. The windless chassis changes in length, height, and proportion along with your foot’s natural movement. And the expansion pods provide cushioning, protection, and flexibility where needed the most. All three are explained more in detail on PUMA‘s site. Many colorways are already available for purchase on the PUMA website as well.
Besides the one of a kind technology, the Mobium Elite is stylish from the tongue down. The open upper air mesh, lace closure, and synthetic overlay should be a very popular feature on the shoe. The Mobium Elite has defiantly just distinguished itself between other running athletic sneakers. What are your thoughts on the PUMA Mobium Elite model? Leave a comment after the jump.
